Tracked Barrow

Recommended Posts

As requested (andrew McEwan) here are the pics of my grillo barrow.


I built the footplate visible behind the engine and added the tow-hitch on the front (so you tow in reverse, but the gears are the same in both directions).


I also built the log frame that straps onto the bed of the barrow, with that in place it will carry nearly 1 cubic meter of logs. By standing on the footplate it is more stable.

Oh that's giving me ideas! Thought about a skidsteer like Ians or a digger like Stevie Blairs but this could be an ideal stop gap and problem solver! Like the ball hitch and log carrier ideas ....


Hmmmm ... off to ebay

Thought about 1 a while ago that you could remove the tub and high tip and fit a hydraulic winch and an upturned small timber grab so basically creating a mini clambunkskidder for long brash.
